This movie is similar to the 1971 film And Now For Something Completely Different which was a film spinoff from the television comedy series Monty Python's Flying Circus featuring favourite sketches from the first two seasons. The difference in both films are that the Pythons recreated all the sketches while Benny Hill used clips from the Thames years and edited them together to make the film.
The movie was produced and released in 1974 by Thames Television Ltd. via its feature-film subsidiary Euston Films and originally distributed by EMI Films. Current Worldwide Distribution by Canal + Image UK LTD.
